photo gallery update

I’ve added a few new works to the galleries.  Please take a look.


This is Luciano, one of my three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.  He’s a real poser and loves having his photo taken.  He’s 15 months old and a bit of a terror at times.


This is a section of Melbourne City taken from the Eureka Tower.  I’ve given it a sepia tone and slight second image texture to age it a bit.

St Andrews…..

This is a two image panorama taken at St Andrews Beach, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia.  The light that day had a beautiful softness about it.

the treeline…..

This was taken in the hills around Boneo, Mornington Peninsula, Australia.  I’ve added lighting in photoshop and a second image texture plus contrast.


This image is from the hills surrounding Cape Schanck, Mornington Peninsula, Australia.  The hills are bare and roll beautifully.  The texture I have added creates a kind of a chaotic fury approaching behind the hills.


textures and photographs

Adding layers of texture to your images can really add a dramatic effect to what might otherwise be a plain photograph.  I find I generally use textures when I want to add some atmosphere or even an aged feel to an image.  Textures and dark vignettes work really well together to draw your eye to the main subject.

Here are a few examples of layered texure added to some images.  In my members zone at the galleria mancuso website, I have a section where I disect layered images and show what I have used to create the finished works.
